Honeywell Vista 20P Control Panel: Compatible IP Cameras
Can I Use the Honeywell Vista 20P Control Panel with Cameras?
Yes, Vista 20P control panel is fully compatible with IP cameras from Honeywell. In order to use the control panel with these cameras, you will need to pair the 20P with either Honeywell Tuxedo Touch WIFI or Honeywell VAM. Honeywell Tuxedo Touch WIFI supports up to 4 Honeywell IP cameras while the Honeywell VAM supports up to 32 cameras. Once you have paired your control panel with either of these, you will be able to use the Honeywell IP cameras and view their footage from any smartphone or computer via a Total Connect 2.0 account.
Honeywell Vista 20P Compatible Cameras
There are three Honeywell IP cameras that are compatible
with Vista 20P. These include Honeywell IPCAM-WO, Honeywell IPCAM-WL, and
Honeywell IPCAM-PT2. The details of each of these cameras are given below.
1. Honeywell IPCAM-WO
IPCAM-WO is an IP camera that you can install for outdoor usage. It integrates with the Total Connect video service. Without this service, the camera is useless so make sure that you get the Total Connect account from an authorized AlarmNet dealer. A security system is not compulsory to use this camera. You only need the camera and a Total Connect video account to be able to remotely view your property. Obviously, a high speed internet connection will also be required.
Since you already have a working Honeywell security system (the
Vista 20P) with a Total account, adding the IPCAM-WO to the system will be
quite easy. You will simply need to install the camera and then update your
Total Connect account in order to control the alarm system and monitor your
home live from the same account.
2. Honeywell IPCAM-WL
IPCAM-WL is the first wireless IP camera from Honeywell that
has been optimized for low light situations. Similar to other IP cameras from
Honeywell, you will need to use it with your Total Connect account. IPCAM-WL
gives you the ability to monitor your property even in the areas where there is
little to no light. IPCAM-WL is affordable and easy to set up. You will need a
reliable local Wi-Fi for optimal monitoring performance. IPCAM-WL is an ideal
choice if you are looking for an IP camera to use with your Vista 20 control
panel in order to monitor dimly lit areas of your property.
3. Honeywell IPCAM-PT2
Honeywell IPCAM-PT2 is another IP camera that is compatible with Vista 20P control panel. It is a second generation pan/tilt security camera. By integrating this camera with your Total Connect 2.0 account, you will be able to view live streaming, video clips, and snapshots remotely. Installing IPCAM-PT2 in your existing security system is a bit technical. The advantages this IP camera offers are many. Not only does it allow higher resolution video capturing, it also supports flash upgrades. The camera is capable of panning up to 320 degrees and tilting up to 120 degrees. You can control the pan and tilt remotely via Total Connect.
